APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Using the RESTAsyncRequest and RESTAsyncResponse nodes in a
    message flow causes a memory leak and a potential
    java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM App Connect Enterprise V11 on Windows using a
    RESTAsyncResponse node.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows on x86-64 platform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The RESTAsyncResponse node stores a connection socket in an
    internal cache for reuse by a RESTAsyncRequest node.
    
    On the Windows platform the RestAsyncResponse node uses an
    invalid key to store a socket in the cache. The cache continues
    to grow because the sockets are never reused.  This causes  a
    memory leak, which may result in a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError
    exception.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The RESTAsyncResponse node now uses the correct key to store a
    connection socket in the internal cache for reuse by a
    RESTAsyncRequest node.
